Chimney Sweep Services
If you have a fireplace, scheduling an annual chimney sweep is an important safety precaution. Every year, thousands of Americans suffer from house fires and carbon monoxide poisoning due to dirty, damaged, or obstructed chimneys. Our chimney sweeps work hard to protect Maryland residents like you from these risks.
Chimney sweeps keep you safe by:
1. Removing Creosote
Creosote is the leading cause of chimney fires. It's an extremely flammable, tar-like substance that's produced by burning fuels like firewood. Even small amounts of creosote in your chimney can be a fire hazard. Creosote is hard to remove without training and professional-grade cleaning supplies.
2. Clearing Out Obstructions
Chimneys often become clogged with leaves, twigs, animal nests, and other debris during the months they aren't in use. Using a fireplace with an obstructed chimney increases the risk of a fire and carbon monoxide poisoning. If carbon monoxide can't vent out your chimney, you could breathe in a dangerous amount of the toxic gas.
A professional chimney cleaning by a CSIA-certified chimney sweep will remove these risks. You can rely on High's Chimney Service for fast, high-quality chimney sweep services in Travilah, MD!
Both the CSIA and National Fire Protection Association recommend an annual chimney inspection along with a chimney sweep to protect your home. Chimneys are vulnerable to a wide range of problems that can impact their performance, safety, and structural integrity. Many chimney problems aren't apparent to an untrained eye until tragedy strikes. Our chimney sweeps and technicians have years of training and experience to assess your fireplace and chimney accurately.
During a basic or level 1 inspection, we check out your chimney's accessible components from top-to-bottom. We look for signs of damage or deterioration of the chimney's exterior masonry, flue liner, chimney cap/chase top, chimney crown, firebox, and fireplace damper. If there are indicators of internal damage, a level 2 inspection may be necessary. A level 2 inspection includes using a video camera or other electronic device to inspect the chimney's interior walls for signs of damage or deterioration.
After the inspection is finished, we will give you a thorough report. We will let you know if we discovered any damage or deterioration. If we do, our information will include suggested remedies. We will never recommend services that you don't need!
The chimney sweeps on our team are experts at chimney repairs as well. Our training and experience include a wide range of repair services, from swapping out damaged components to rebuilding masonry. Give us a call to receive a quote or learn more about:
